Kanagawa and Fujix Tire make the highest quality filament silk thread available worldwide. The thread construction is an even 3 ply twisted continuous filament silk thread. It is colofast and it has a high sheen.
Although designed mainly for hand embroidery, needlepoint, hand stitching, tayloring, and for quilting, this silk thread is also great for beading, half-hitching, micro-macrame, Cavandoli knotting, and for making tassels.
Personal note - I love this thread. It has a lovely feel and sheen. The filaments are sturdy and well plied. It does well with manipulation unlike many other silks. The color range is great! If you are not familiar with this product, check the mini-card set available HERE.
